View Full Version : More complete FPS conversion <<<

07-12-2012, 07:00 AM

I often use motion captured data in my scenes captured at 30 FPS.
After I finish manually editing the motions for hands, eyes, feet ect. I
convert the scene to 25 FPS for my final render. ( I am in Australia PAL )
Most things convert fine, and I don't mind the fractional frame I get...
But below is a list of plugins/components that don't convert.
These keep the original frame numbers I entered, causing the timing to be off at 25 FPS.

Both Camera Switchers.
Motion Mixer
The shift frames field in ClothFX ( and maybe other FX panels )

I don't expect third party apps/plugins to be supported, but the above list is native.
I currently need to remember to change these manually with below calculation:

( Old Frame / 30 ) x 25 = New Frame for 25 FPS

Can this be fixed?

I suppose any measurements in frames will also stay in frames, as opposed to those using time as a base value (which doesn't change as you change the fps).
